    Krystal Fraser - Missing since 20th June 2009. Due to give birth.

    Krystal, where are you?
    03 Jul, 2009 11:46 AM
    FEARS for the welfare of missing pregnant woman Krystal Fraser and her child have escalated amid beliefs she may have gone underground.

    Twenty-four year old Krystal, who has the mental capacity of a teenager, disappeared on Saturday, June 20, one day before she was due to give birth.

    Senior Constable Jason Brady, who works in Krystal’s home town of Pyramid Hill, said that everything possible was being done to locate her.

    “I’m as concerned as much as anyone.

    “We’ve got an intellectually disabled woman, who is post term, with no medical assistance.

    “The whole investigation raises alarm bells for me.”Senior Constable Brady said that police and Pyramid Hill residents believed that Krystal may be scared to come forward.

    He said that while it was believed that she was hiding out in the Bendigo area, other explanations for her disappearance could not be discounted.

    “If anyone knows where she is we are urging them to come forward and at least let officials know she is safe,” Senior Constable Brady said.

    Sue Lacey is one of many Pyramid Hill residents who has barely slept since Krystal went missing, and is among many people to have spent hours searching the streets of Bendigo for the vulnerable young woman.

    Mrs Lacey is also one of more than 500 members of the FaceBook group Help us find Krystal Fraser.

    “I’ve known her since she was 10 . . . I took her to the doctor in Boort when she found out that she was pregnant,” Mrs Lacey said.

    “I believe that she’s gone underground now.

    “And that would be killing her.

    “She comes into IGA about 40 times a day, she’s the friendliest person you could ever meet.”Krystal has not used her mobile phone or accessed her bank accounts since her disappearance.

    “People have asked me if she would have planned this, and been saving but she couldn’t save money.

    “I don’t believe this was planned.”Krystal was sighted at Bendigo Marketplace on Sunday, June 21, and again near the Bendigo Post Office on Wednesday, June 24.

    She was at Bendigo Hospital’s maternity accommodation section in Stuart Street on Saturday, June 20, when she said that she was going to go home.

    She left the premises, but has not returned to the Pyramid Hill flat she lives in alone since.

    Senior Constable Brady said that anyone who saws Krystal should engage in conversation with her, stay with her and ring 000 and ask for an ambulance and the police.

    Any other information can be reported to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

    Police search for last known contact with missing woman
    August 10, 2009

    A woman missing for more than seven weeks has not accessed bank accounts or used her mobile phone since she vanished.

    Krystal Fraser was heavily pregnant when she walked out of Bendigo Hospital nearly two months ago.

    Phone records show she received several phone calls from a pay phone hours after her last known sighting but never answered, police said

    Police today released more details on the disappearance in an effort to track the missing woman.

    "We’re desperate to speak with anyone who may have any information on her whereabouts or intended plans," Senior Detective Mark Crossley said.

    It has now been more than 50 days since Krystal disappeared.

    Police say she caught a train from Bendigo to Pyramid Hill in the state’s north on June 20.

    The 24-year-old, who suffers from an intellectual disability, walked to her unit in Kelly Street before heading to Albert Street about 9.30pm.

    It is the last confirmed sighting of the mother-to-be.

    When she vanished, Krystal was just days shy of her due date with a son her family says she hoped to name Ryan.

    She has not used the internet or contacted family and friends since she went missing.

    Previous reports of sightings at a Bendigo shopping centre have proven inaccurate, and a three-hour ground search of Pyramid Hill involving 40 volunteers two weeks ago found nothing.

    The Police Air Wing took to the skies on Friday with hopes something would be found to determine Krystal's whereabouts, but the search yielded little.

    "Police still hold grave fears for the safety of Krystal and her baby," said Detective Senior Constable Mark Crossley, from the Bendigo crime investigation unit.

    "We know Krystal attended a hairdresser in Pyramid Hill the day before she went missing, and she now has very short, brown hair," he said.

    Krystal was wearing an orange top and black tracksuit pants at the time of her disappearance. Police believe she may also have been wearing a camouflage-coloured baseball cap.

    "Krystal had many friends in the Pyramid Hill, Cohuna and Kerang areas, and she was a regular user of her mobile phone and the internet, none of which have been accessed since her disappearance,'' Detective Crossley said.

    One lead police have is a phone call. Someone in the Leitchville area tried to contact Krystal about midnight on June 20.
    The person made a series of calls from a local pay phone.

    "We need that person to contact us and provide any information they might have,'' Detective Crossley said.

    Krystal was a regular user of the internet, and police believe she used the name Kylie Wright in chat rooms.

    "It is possible someone may have spoken to her under that name, not realising it was Krystal,'' Detective Crossley said.

    Anyone with information about Krystal Fraser is asked to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

    Woman presumed dead may have met her killer online
    Brendan Roberts From:Herald Sun October 17, 2009 12:00AM

    A WOMAN presumed dead after vanishing just days before she was due to give birth may have met her killer online.

    Internet-obsessed Krystal Fraser, 24, disappeared from the Bendigo area on June 20.

    Heavily pregnant, she had planned to call her baby boy Ryan.

    Police say that uncovering the identity of a person who called Ms Fraser from a public phone in Leitchville late on the night she disappeared is the key to the mystery.

    Homicide detectives are investigating whether Ms Fraser, who had an intellectual disability and was an avid user of internet chat rooms and social networking sites, may have chatted to her killer online.

    Det-Sgt Wayne Woltsche said Ms Fraser accessed the internet through her phone for the final time hours after the mysterious midnight phone call.

    "She had run out of credit on her phone, but she could still access the internet ... about 3am (on June 21) was the last time she logged on to the internet, but because it was through a phone we are not able to find out which sites or chat room she accessed," he said.

    "About 1.30am to 1.45am she was online, or someone she was with was using her phone to access the internet.

    "But again, without the phone, we don't have any information on what sites were accessed."

    Detectives have established that Ms Fraser travelled on a V/Line train from Bendigo to Pyramid Hill on the day of her disappearance and arrived at 8.40pm.

    She was last seen an hour later leaving a friend's house in Albert St, Pyramid Hill.

    The mystery phone call, from a public phone outside the Leitchville Post Office two hours later, is the last time someone spoke to Ms Fraser.

    "A number of calls were made from that phone box to Krystal's phone in the months before she went missing," Det-Sgt Woltsche said.

    "The phone and the identity of the caller are both critical."

    Police yesterday concluded a two-day line search of the Pyramid Hill area looking for clues. A helicopter was also used to scour the search zone.

    The missing phone is a Samsung flip phone.

    Who killed Krystal Fraser?
    Steve Drill From:Sunday Herald Sun October 25, 2009 12:00AM

    Police hold grave fears for the safety of missing Bendigo woman Krystal Fraser and her baby. Picture: Victoria Police Source: Herald Sun

    TWO days before nine-months pregnant Krystal Fraser disappeared, she told a friend online she feared the father of her child would harm her if she gave birth.

    New details have been uncovered in the mysterious disappearance of Ms Fraser, who was three days from giving birth when she vanished at Pyramid Hill, about 100km north of Bendigo.

    Police suspect she has been killed because she has not used her mobile phone, touched her bank account or visited a hospital since she was last seen on Saturday, June 20.

    Her wallet was found in a shopping bag on the couch in her flat, along with a new stroller, nappies and clothes for her unborn child.

    Ms Fraser was 23 when she disappeared, but an intellectual disability meant she had the mental capacity of a 15-year-old.

    She knew she was expecting a boy and planned to call him Ryan.

    A friend, Bendigo building subcontractor Carlo Anfuso, 20, spoke to Ms Fraser in a chat room on the Thursday before she disappeared.

    Mr Anfuso said Ms Fraser seemed stressed.

    "She said she was worried about what the father of her baby might do if he finds out she had the child," he said.

    Mr Anfuso said he thought Ms Fraser's comment was strange, but did not think of it again until he saw reports last week that she was still missing.

    He made a report to Bendigo police.

    Police believe Ms Fraser has been murdered and suspect her body is buried in the bush, but searches of land near Pyramid Hill have failed to find her.

    They suspect Ms Fraser may have chatted to her killer online.

    They have made no arrests.

    The case is complicated because the father of Ms Fraser's child is unknown.

    The pregnancy was a shock to Ms Fraser and her family.

    She had a contraceptive implant inserted in her arm, but it failed.

    She told family and friends she was unsure of the identity of the father.

    Her mother, Karen, has been hoping desperately her daughter is still alive, but the hope is turning to despair because she has not heard from her eldest daughter in months.

    "She didn't leave Pyramid Hill on her own. If they have killed her, they have killed my own grandson as well and that is just sick," Mrs Fraser said.

    "You don't hurt a pregnant woman. You move out of the way for them.

    "I can't believe anyone would touch her. It was obvious she was pregnant - her stomach was as big as a basketball."

    Mrs Fraser had a message for anyone who knew anything about her daughter's disappearance.

    "Someone has to know something. Secrets eat away at you - they will slip up eventually," she said.

    spend the working week in Horsham where their business is based and return to Pyramid Hill on weekends.

    They were in Horsham on the Saturday night when Krystal disappeared because Mr Fraser had been in hospital for a week with pancreatitis.

    Mr and Mrs Fraser and their youngest daughter, Chantel, who celebrated her 21st birthday this month, are moving back to Pyramid Hill.

    The move was supposed to be for the arrival of their grandchild, but instead they now may have to deal with the death of two of their loved ones.

    Mrs Fraser said she wanted answers.

    "I don't want to become a statistic. I don't want to spend the next 30 years waiting for a phone call. I don't want to see her on the television still listed as a missing person," she said.

    "Krystal deserves better than that."

    Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

    Murder probe: Krystal Fraser feared killed
    16 Oct, 2009 08:11 AM
    POLICE fear that an intellectually disabled woman who went missing days before she was due to give birth has been murdered.

    Pyramid Hill woman Krystal Fraser has been missing for almost four months and her disappearance is now being investigated by homicide detectives.

    Ms Fraser, 24, was last seen leaving a house in Albert Street, Pyramid Hill, about 9.30pm on June 20.

    Shortly before midnight, she received a call on her mobile phone from a public phone booth outside the Leitchville Post Office.

    The person who made this call is the focus of police inquiries into Ms Fraser’s murder.

    Homicide squad detectives and as many as 40 volunteers searched a property about 10 kilometres east of Pyramid Hill yesterday after receiving two tip-offs about the location of Ms Fraser’s body.

    Homicide squad Detective Sergeant Wayne Woltsche said police appealed for anybody with information about Ms Fraser to come forward.

    The father of Ms Fraser’s child is unknown, but it is believed she was expecting a boy.

    “We’ve got extremely grave concerns for her and it is our belief Krystal Fraser has met with foul play and has in fact been murdered,” Detective Sergeant Woltsche said.

    “Our inquiries have led us all around the area, including areas of Pyramid Hill, Gunbower, Leitchville, Cohuna and Swan Hill.

    “Inquiries we have conducted to this stage have not provided us with any information or evidence of Krystal Fraser’s whereabouts.”

    Detective Sergeant Woltsche said the homicide squad had become involved in Ms Fraser’s disappearance although no new evidence had been uncovered.

    “What we’ve established from our investigation is that Krystal Fraser was a person of habit,” he said.

    “She was very attached to her mobile phone and used it extensively, making numerous text messages, phone calls and accessing the internet via her mobile phone.

    “She was also very compulsive with her money, in that she would withdraw it as soon as she was paid.

    “Her bank account remains untouched. Further to that, her phone has not been used since (June 20).

    “Her family have celebrated a number of birthdays, Krystal herself celebrating a birthday, her sister had a 21st last week, she’s not been heard from, she has not attempted to make contact with any family member, which is highly out of character for Krystal.”

    Detective Sergeant Woltsche said police were no longer investigating the man who Ms Fraser visited in Albert Street on the night of her disappearance.

    Reward earmarked to help solve case of Krystal Fraser
    Elissa Doherty From:Herald Sun June 10, 2010 9:35PM

    POLICE are hoping to post a large reward to help solve the mysterious disappearance of an intellectually disabled woman almost 12 months ago.

    Krystal Fraser, 24, was nine months pregnant when she vanished from the Bendigo area on June 20 last year.

    Police said last night an application had been made for a reward but it had yet to be approved.

    It is expected the reward will be $100,000, for any information that helps catch her killer.

    The internet-savvy woman was just days away from giving birth when she disappeared, and it is presumed she was murdered.

    She had planned to call her baby boy Ryan.

    On the afternoon of June 20, Ms Fraser had been waiting at Bendigo Base Hospital in case she went into labour.

    Police established that later that night she caught a V/Line train home to Pyramid Hill, 100km north of Bendigo, arriving at 8.40pm.

    She was last seen alive leaving an address in Albert Street, Pyramid Hill, about 9.30pm.

    Shortly before midnight, she received a phone call on her mobile from a public phone booth outside the Leitchville Post Office.

    It is believed that the caller was the last person to speak to Ms Fraser before her disappearance.

    Ms Fraser was a regular user of internet chat rooms and social networking sites. Investigations have probed whether she chatted to her killer online.

    From 1.30am-3am, her phone was used to surf the internet.

    Her wallet was found in a shopping bag on the couch in her flat, along with a new stroller, nappies and clothes for her unborn child.

    She was last seen wearing an orange top, black tracksuit pants and a camouflage-patterned baseball cap.

    Members of a Facebook site called "Help us find Krystal Fraser" last night welcomed news of the reward.

    Sickening Rumours in a Small Country Town - 4 Year Anniversary of Disappearance

    It's almost 20June again. Her family should be getting ready for Krystal's son's 4th birthday, but instead it's the 4 year anniversary of their disappearance, 3 days before her due date.

    This is a very detailed article published for the third anniversary of her disappearance from the small country town where she'd grown up. It gives a much better picture of her life & who she was, the journalists have also managed to pick up local rumour/belief about what happened to Krystal & why. & more disturbingly how & where (the person most often blamed has worked in the past as a butcher & much of the town's employment centres on a local abattoir & meat-processing plant).

    One of the local coppers is quoted as saying "whoever has done this, has done it well". The general consensus is that she was killed to hide the identity of her baby's father. The investigation uncovered a long string of secret sexual relationships between Krystal & local males. These relationships would've been called consensual, but in truth Krystal was being very much taken advantage of.

    "Those involved with Krystal did so largely in secret. Friends now realise she led a double life". Det. Sergeant Woltsche of the Victorian Police Homicide Squad heads the investigation & said "Whose baby was it? & how do you prove that unless we find her? No-one has ever admitted they're the father of the child to us, but a number of people have admitted they've had relationships with her"

    The investigation was hampered at times by "red herrings" - including the seperate suicides of 2 local men. The first was a neighbour, & never a serious suspect, seen arguing with Krystal shortly before she disappeared. The second was a truck driver for the abattoir & had a been a suspect for a time. The article reads "the sick talk went that Krystal's body had been disposed of. Minced & fed to pigs" .Of the abattoir rumours Woltsche said "I've seen no evidence to support the abattoir side of things. I've certainly seen people who are shady in character hanging around abattoirs, but you can say that about all abattoirs"

    This is a link to the article by Chris Johnston & Nino Bucci from The Age 23 June 2012, I can't do it from my tablet, but if anyone's able to quote the entire article in this thread, rather than the bits & pieces I've snipped from it, it'd be great... here's the link

    Even if they find Krystal & her baby, & identify their killer with 100% certainty as her son's father, & the father ADMITS this was all done for the sole purpose of avoiding child support or some other similarly shitty reason, under Victorian law he can't be prosecuted for his son's death unless it can be proved he was born before he was killed. It doesn't matter that he was a perfectly healthy full-term baby just days from his due date. The law as it stands doesn't recognise him as a person.

    KRYSTAL Fraser moved out of home five years ago, when she was 19. She had the mental age of about 14. This was up in Pyramid Hill north of Bendigo, a tiny, struggling town with big, big silos and edgeless skies. Her intellectual disability was mild. She could talk and read and write. She finished high school and was able to work. She could more or less look after herself.

    Hygiene was a problem from time to time, according to friends, but it was no big deal.

    ‘‘She was just not quite right,’’ says her mother, Karen Fraser. Krystal was born with fluid on the brain but was never diagnosed with anything specific. ‘‘It could get frustrating. But underneath she was a really, really good person.’’

    She moved into a place just around the corner from her parents and brother and sister. Her mother works in a salt plant, her dad, Neil, drives trucks. Krystal’s unit was in a grim brown 1970s housing commission block on the edge of town, the Swan Hill railway line directly behind it, V/Line trains clattering through twice a day.

    She wanted to live alone and please herself, according to her mother.
    ‘‘She didn’t like my rules — ‘get home at a decent hour, tell us where you are, come home for tea’, just normal shit like that.’’

    Krystal Fraser.

    She was always out. She would wander Pyramid Hill. Publican David Demaine, who knew her since she was seven, when the family moved north from Melbourne, remembers Krystal nearly being clipped by the side mirror of a truck because she was walking as she usually did with her eyes on her mobile phone, texting and using the internet.

    She would visit homes and constantly ride the V/Line trains up and back between Swan Hill and Bendigo and all points in between — Kerang, Pyramid, Dingee and Eaglehawk. She knew people in all these places. Train and station staff knew her too, as did the regular commuters.

    Krystal was a friendly girl. She had crooked teeth but she smiled a lot. She wore glasses, but her eyes were often smiling too. The problem was she was more than friendly, she was over-friendly.

    Homicide detectives think this is why she vanished and was then murdered, three years ago this week, just three days away from giving birth to a boy she wanted to call Ryan. Her family fears the worst. Locals reckon there is a prime suspect.

    His name is rarely mentioned now, but it is whispered.

    ‘‘I’ve got nothing to say about it,’’ the man says. ‘‘I gave them [the homicide squad] all the information I could and they’ve used it against me.

    ‘‘It’s turned my life upside down. They’ve tried to turn my mates against me.’’

    Krystal Fraser’s disability meant she could not distinguish between good people and bad people. She craved attention of any kind from anyone who would give it. She discovered all the ways she could gather more ‘‘friends’’.

    One person who knew her puts it like this: when a stranger walks into the pub at Pyramid Hill, Krystal’s the one who rocks up and starts talking and finds out who he is and won’t let up.

    Where most would give her some time and then walk away, the bad seeds who sniffed an opportunity would not.

    THE policeman running the murder investigation is Detective Sergeant Wayne Woltsche of the homicide squad. He grew up in Swan Hill. He understands country life in a town like Pyramid Hill, which is home to only about 250 people. Everybody knows everybody else’s business.

    Krystal was a colourful local identity, a ‘‘serial pest’’ according to one local. All described her similarly; annoying at times, easily led, no social skills, but an important person in the town and very popular.

    Many kept an eye out for her, reining her in when needed.

    At school she did work experience for butcher Paul Walters. He went to school with the prime suspect but describes him as ‘‘a good bloke’’ who he could not imagine to be a killer.

    After finishing school she worked at the Pyramid Hill supermarket. Her mother worked there too. She always went to the footy club’s home games and ran water for the under-17s.

    She had several social workers from Bendigo, according to Karen Fraser, but she ‘‘slipped through the cracks’’ of the welfare system and they stopped coming.

    When she moved into her unit she did her best with cooking but could really only manage sandwiches, toast, cereal and frozen vegetables. She was free to wander and not come home. ‘‘She wouldn’t think twice about walking the streets at two in the morning,’’ Karen Fraser says.

    Small country towns have a great spirit, says Woltsche. Pyramid Hill has an elderly intellectually disabled man who has lived there all his life and is well loved and happy.

    But rumours and cover-ups are rife, and both of these things have hampered Woltsche’s investigation. Those involved with Krystal did so largely in secret. Friends now realise she had a double life.

    ‘‘Whose baby was it?’’ Woltsche asks, ‘‘and how do you prove that, unless we find her? No one has ever admitted they are the father of the child to us, but a number of people have admitted they have had relationships with her.’’

    Like any compelling murder mystery, this one has a red herring; a big, distracting clue which turns out to be wrong. Two, in fact, both suicides. A man who lived in the same housing commission units as Krystal and was seen arguing with her before she disappeared killed himself by lying on the nearby train tracks. But he was never a real suspect.

    Then came the fate of a man named Stephen Jones. In the winter of 2010, a year after she vanished, he shot himself with a shotgun in Kerang. He was a truck driver for the Gunbower meat plant McGillivray Abattoir, where pigs and cows are killed and cut up.

    He had a history of mental illness, he had money problems. Police sources say he was a drug user too. He was a suspect for a time. Already the district was rife with rumours about the abattoirs, including McGillivray’s, and the sick talk went that Krystal’s body had been disposed of. Minced and fed to pigs.

    Woltsche dismisses the theory.

    ‘‘I grew up near there, and I played footy in the country, real country. I know what it’s like in the rumour mill and I could see which way it [the investigation] was going to go,’’ he says.

    ‘‘Certainly some people have injected themselves into the investigation with some of the things they’ve said. That is the rumour and innuendo we have had all along.

    ‘‘I’ve seen no evidence to support the abattoir side of things,’’ he says, ‘‘I’ve certainly seen people who are shady in character hanging around abattoirs but you could say that about nearly all abattoirs.’’

    The district is unremarkable, mostly. Pyramid’s triangular granite hill dominates the flat plains, with the smaller Mount Hope to the north. The three towns form a triangle of their own. All exist on dairy and irrigation farming, meatworks, the salt plant and a large quarry. Pyramid’s footy team, the Bulldogs, goes all right in the Loddon Valley league. The Catholic church is the busiest of the four.

    A house can cost as little as $80,000 and there’s plenty of them for sale. Plenty of farmhouses for rent too, dirt cheap.

    Pyramid, particularly, is a pretty good place to hide and there is a small subculture of men who don’t work or irregularly work, smoke marijuana and ignore community hubs such as the football club.

    Woltsche is fond of the locals in Pyramid, Gunbower and Leitchville because they remind him of his kind in Swan Hill, only 100kilometres away.

    ‘‘Good country people,’’ he says. ‘‘The persons of interest that we have spoken to are a different kettle of fish. We certainly have a number of people who fit into that category.’’

    To publican David Demaine they are the ‘‘ratbags’’. Everyone knows them but they never do much to help. A store manager is less forgiving. ‘‘Rats,’’ he says. ‘‘Dopeheads. Useless, lazy pricks.’’

    part 2:

    Krystal Lee Fraser was last seen on June 20, 2009, in Pyramid Hill. It was a Saturday. She had been in accommodation adjoining the maternity ward at Bendigo Hospital, where she was to give birth to her son.

    On June 19 she came back home and had a meal in the pub but thenthe next morning she was rushed back to Bendigo Hospital inan ambulance, with pregnancy complications.

    But then later that day, the Friday, she came home again, by train. She was seen getting off at 8.40pm. Nothing unusual there, except perhaps that she was able to leave the hospital accommodation so freely and so close to her due date.

    She was a familiar face in and out of the Pyramid Hill V/Line station because of her habit of riding the Swan Hill line.

    ‘‘She would just get up and go,’’ says Woltsche. ‘‘She had associates everywhere ... These people were not great friends but she had a lot of people she stayed with all the way along the rail line.’’

    Most of these people she referred to by nicknames only and no one who knew her well ever met them. She would have become pregnant in September 2008.

    Why she came back to Pyramid Hill on June 20 is a good question, says Woltsche. ''We suspect she was going to meet someone.''

    That night she was last seen alive at a house in Albert Street, Pyramid Hill. She left that house at 9.40pm. She made a phone call from there on her mobile and had spoken of visiting another house but, according to police, she went home.

    Just before midnight someone called her mobile, and spoke to her. The call was made from a public telephone outside a post office in Leitchville, 32 kilometres away.

    And that was it, she was never seen or heard of again. Her phone was tracked travelling in the direction of Leitchville along a two-lane bush road around 3am. But then the signal ended. Whether she was alive or dead at this time the police don't know. The phone has never been found.

    ''If you look at the history of her phone,'' says Woltsche, ''it very rarely got off the railway line from Bendigo to Swan Hill. That was the movement over a number of years.''

    This time different phone towers picked up her signal. ''We can see she went across country,'' he says, ''which was unusual.''

    Everyone thought at first she had gone wandering again. Sometime the next day a local CFA man broke into her unit and found nothing except the purse she always carried.

    Local policeman Senior Constable Jason Brady worked the case for a month until homicide were called in. Three line searches have been done, including one at Bald
    Rock between Pyramid Hill and Leitchville. Police have also scoured nearby Mount Hope, known locally as Suicide Rock, with no result.

    ''Whoever has done this,'' says Brady, ''has done it well.''

    This week a $100,000 reward was posted. Victoria Police say the Department of Public Prosecutions will also consider indemnity for anyone with information about the ''principal offender or offenders''.

    It is unlikely police could lay a double murder charge even though the child was about to be born because of Victorian laws around foetal deaths.

    Detective Sergeant Woltsche knows he has always been close to finding the killer and potential accomplices - but not close enough. He says he is one fragment of information away. One phone call away. The investigation is not the bash-down-the-door type. Nor is it the forensic type. It's a waiting game.

    ''I certainly believe this is a very, very solvable case,'' he says.

    it's hard for people with a mental disability who are stuck in their early teens. they know and understand that they are disadvantaged, but are seen as adults. they tend to want to be treated the age they are physically and are easy to take advantage of because of this.

    if she's with the pigs, we'll never know what happened to her.

    A man arrested and questioned in February in relation to the 2009 disappearance of Pyramid Hill woman Krystal Fraser is no longer a person of interest, police say.

    Missing Person Squad detectives arrested the 61-year-old Pyramid Hill man on February 13 before interviewing him.

    He was then released, pending further enquiries.

    But a Victoria Police spokeswoman this morning confirmed the man was no longer considered a person of interest in the case.
    A reward of up to $100,000 is offered for information leading to the conviction of the person or people responsible for Krystal’s death.

    The Department of Public Prosecutions will also consider granting any person who provides information on the identity of the offender or offenders protection from prosecution.

    Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit

    Krystal Fraser went missing while pregnant in Pyramid Hill. Police now offer a $1 million reward

    Victorian police have announced a $1 million reward for information about the suspected murder of Krystal Fraser, who disappeared a decade ago while heavily pregnant.

    Key points:

    Ms Fraser discharged herself from hospital the night she disappeared

    Police believe she was later murdered, but her body has never been found

    Investigators are narrowing in on a suspect believed to be the father of her unborn child

    The then 23-year-old, who had an intellectual disability, was last seen on June 20, 2009 in the small town of Pyramid Hill in north central Victoria.

    Police said she discharged herself from hospital the evening she went missing, just days before she was due to give birth to a baby boy.

    She has never been found and police believe she was murdered.

    Detective Acting Inspector Julian Horan, from the Missing Persons Squad, said detectives had received "promising" new information earlier this year about a person previously spoken to by police.

    "[It] sadly leads us to look at the possibility that Krystal met with foul play because of the intimate relationship she shared with a man," Detective Inspector Horan said.

    "This relationship and the subsequent pregnancy may have caused a confrontation between Krystal and this man, leading to her disappearance and death."

    The investigation covered multiple regional Victorian towns when it began in 2009, and despite a man being arrested in 2018 no charges have been laid.

    "This new information has allowed us to narrow our focus more closely on one individual," Detective Inspector Horan said.

    A reward of $100,000 offered in 2012 has been boosted to $1 million for information leading to the conviction of Ms Fraser's killer or killers.

    Police said they had established Ms Fraser travelled on a V/Line train from Bendigo, in central Victoria, to Pyramid Hill on the day of her disappearance.

    They said she got off the train about 8:40pm, and was last seen leaving an Albert Street address about 9:30pm after visiting an acquaintance.

    "It has been 10 years since Krystal's disappearance. Her unborn son would have been 10 years old. It is unimaginable to try and understand what the family must have lived through over the past decade," Detective Inspector Horan said.

    Police said Ms Fraser took a 40-second phone call on her mobile phone just before midnight. The origin of that call has been traced to a public phone box outside the post office in the nearby town of Leitchville.

    Her mobile phone activity placed her in Leitchville at 2:49am, some three hours after she got the phone box call.

    Police said the town was significant because it was about a 10-minute drive to neighbouring Cohuna, where she had earlier told hospital staff she would be attending a party.

    "We believe she discharged herself from hospital on the night of her disappearance, against medical advice, because of what she described as a 'party at Cohuna'," Detective Inspector Horan said.

    "What we don't know is whether or not there was actually a party. If there was, who attended and what was the specific location?

    "Calls to Krystal's mobile phone, from the Leitchville phone booth, the night prior to her disappearance and while she was at the hospital, lead us to believe they relate to the 'party' she mentioned to hospital staff.

    "I believe this caller holds the answers to what happened to Krystal and may be the father of Krystal's unborn child.

    "Investigators strongly believe that the caller was the last person to speak to Krystal prior to her disappearance."

    Rewards for information are paid at the discretion of the Chief Commissioner of Police.

    Police said the Director of Public Prosecutions may also consider granting indemnification to people who provided information about the identity of Ms Fraser's killer or killers.

    Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers.
